YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2015-09-14 15:12:00 – Mumbai

Techtextil India, India’s largest exhibition for technical textiles and nonwovens, will be underway next week, from 24 - 26 September 2015. It is confirmed that the exhibition will be inaugurated by Mrs. Kiran Soni Gupta, IAS-Textile Commissioner, Ministry of Textiles, Government of India. Guest of Honor Mr. Michael Siebert Consul General of the Federal Republic of Germany in Mumbai will also be present at the inauguration.

Hosting over 145 exhibitors from 10 countries, the exhibition will showcase the entire technical textile and nonwoven industry value chain with its 10 product groups and 12 application areas of Agrotech, Buildtech, Clothtech, Geotech, Hometech, Indutech, Medtech, Mobiltech, Oekotech, Packtech, Protech and Sporttech, over the three days.

Among the highlights of the show, Reliance Polymers is set to launch what the company claims will be one of the world’s greenest Environment friendly sustainable fibers “Recron GreenGold” manufactured from post-consumer waste PET bottles.

The Recron GreenGold fibres are said to be one of the greenest fibres of the world in terms of Co2e. In terms of sustainability, these fibres help in reducing dependence on fossil fuels, natural resources by using post-consumer waste PET bottles which would otherwise have gone for land fill, oceans, or incineration whereas in terms of performance, these fibers are just like the virgin polyester fibre.

These fibres also replace the wet coloring process in the production of dyed polyester staple fibre with a dry one, where the colors are added with the raw material instead of coloring the fibre in an additional dyeing process. As fibre comes out colored, it eliminates the need of wet dyeing process all the way to the textile value chain from fibre to yarn to fabric, making it suitable for both apparel and technical textile players to offer certified green end-products and meet the increasing need for sustainable apparel from overseas buyers and brands.

Open to business professionals of the technical textiles and nonwovens industry, these fibres will be showcased at the Techtextil India exhibition opening next week. Product introductions by other key Indian textile manufacturers like Welspun, SSM, A.T.E. Enterprise, Coir Board of India, ITEMA Weaving, Leister Technologies, Picanol India will also be shown at the exhibition.

Techtextil India, now in its 5th edition is held biennially in India and is organised by Messe Frankfurt Trade Fairs India Pvt. Ltd with support from Office of the Textile Commissioner, Ministry of Textiles, Government of India and the Indian Technical Textile Association (ITTA). India being the second largest textile economy in the world, the purpose is to encourage the development of innovative technology and foster growth and India’s competitiveness on the global platform.
